However, we often use shortened names too. Here is a list of those names from those of my machine in /usr/share/locale: de, en_GB, ru_UA.koi8u, sr@...in, etc. Due to this mismatch, we can't get translations with musl's gettext API for applications in wild. Thus, I'm considering to implement locale searching with shortening. Does it make sense? -- Masanori Ogino
